Yesterday we took a look at varying perspectives on the the connections of top FBI lawyer, General Counsel James Baker, with recently indicted Clinton legal operative Michael Sussman. We also reviewed the involvement of Baker with his close friend, notorious journo-political operative and sleaze artist David Corn, who was also eager to peddle Clinton Campaign hoaxes to Baker. Finally, we noted Baker’s awareness of the presence of another key DC sleaze merchant and political operative, Glenn Simpson (founder of Fusion GPS), in this mix. It came as no surprise that defenders of the institutional FBI such as shipwreckedcrew and Andy McCarthy (both former federal prosecutors) are coming around to the view that, while “the FBI” may not have been “knowing accomplices”, it certainly appears that “the FBI” was “happy to help” the Clinton operatives who were peddling hoaxes.

This exchange is also relevant to today's post:
Mccabe's Porsche on Blocks:
"If Durham has a massive conspiracy case, for him this is just an opening salvo letting the thus far uncooperative soft targets know it's their last chance.
"I can't think of a softer target than Robby Mook, and he's been awfully quiet."
SWC: "Dan Jones and Glenn Simpson on the outside."
Hadda laff at this exchange:
HICKAMANIA: "Sussman wants to go to trial ASAP."
SWC: "They always say that.
"And its always not true."
I have always assumed Baker knew exactly who Sussman was representing in that meeting. Baker pretended not to know, and Sussman pretended not to tell. Baker had to cut Sussman loose, however, once it became clear to him the entire Alfa Bank story was fabricated by Sussman and his clients.
Nice summary Mark. Put's it more clearly in perspective for me with these various threads you've woven. Makes it easier to understand. HRC was well informed and approved of the whole operation. Don't forget Brennan's brief to Obama in summer of 2016 too about the HRC/DNC camps shenanigans. Obama is complicit too IMO.
This is interesting, in light of Trump delegating declassification authority to Durham for anything he needed to declassify.
Not clear what classified evidence there would be that goes to the simple question of whether or not he lied to Baker about the info not being on behalf of any client.
The Maté’ post is at Consortium News, along with a worthy Readers' comment by Marshall T Smith.
They just wated to get rid of the camelbacks, but they put too much explosives in the blasting caps. Now the underground structure is crumbling, water is pouring in, the mine is collapsing, and the CYA is raising to the roof just like the water. Since they can't all CYA with the daylight coming in, the rats will come streaming out also, telling their stories. The mine is caving in. Yay!
It looks like they are about to fall into the traps they built. I say Amen! God is still on His Throne!
